9. LB Deion Jones Drafted By: Atlanta Falcons (2016)
The speedy Deion Jones burst onto the scene as a rookie for the Atlanta Falcons, intercepting three passes and returning two of them for a touchdown, including one for 90 yards. Jones added 106 tackles and helped lead the Falcons all the way to the brink of a Super Bowl victory before they collapsed late against the Patriots.
Jones was even better as a sophomore, racking up 138 tackles and adding three more interceptions en route to his first Pro Bowl berth. Jones missed much of the 2018 season with a foot injury but remains one of the game’s brightest young linebackers, excellent in pass coverage and quick to recover in the run game.
